Of course, however even if by some unbelievable chance we eliminated 100% of all unintended pregnancies, that still wouldn't address the fact that women may need access to safe, legal late-term abortions for health reasons.

What you and PX have expressed here is absolutely valid, however it is only one part of the picture.

No doubt, but I think the point stands that true comprehensive sex ed is much more effective than abstinence only.
